We’re about to make something super cool – literally! Ever thought about turning your ice cubes into candy-flavored treats? Well, we’re here to show you how, and all you need is some Kool-Aid magic.

Imagine adding candy flavors to your drinks without any tricks – it’s like candy and ice became best buddies. Whether you’re sipping lemonade or fruit juice, get set to make your drinks way more exciting. So, gather ’round and let’s make frozen goodies that’ll make your taste buds tingle with joy – all thanks to Kool-Aid!


1.5 L bottle of Simply Lemonade or Limeade

1 Kool-Aid packet

Silicone ice cube tray


1. Empty Kool-Aid packet into lemonade bottle.

2. Shake until thoroughly dissolved.

3. Pour into ice cube tray.

4. Let freeze until solid (several hours or overnight).

Can I Use Any Flavor of Kool-Aid?

Absolutely! One of the great things about making Kool-Aid ice cubes is the wide variety of flavors you can experiment with. From classic favorites like cherry and grape to more exotic choices like tropical punch and blue raspberry, the possibilities are endless.

The key is to select a flavor that complements the drink you’ll be using the ice cubes in. For instance, a citrusy Kool-Aid flavor could work wonderfully with lemonade or iced tea, while a berry-flavored one might be a hit in fruit punches or mixed cocktails.

How Long Does It Take for the Infused Ice Cubes to Freeze?

The freezing time for Kool-Aid infused ice cubes is generally in line with the freezing time for regular ice cubes. Typically, it takes around 4 to 6 hours for ice cubes to freeze solid in a standard home freezer.

However, this can vary slightly based on factors like your freezer’s temperature settings and the size of the ice cube trays you’re using.

If you’re in a rush and need your ice cubes faster, you can set your freezer to its coldest setting or use smaller ice cube trays for quicker results. Just keep an eye on them as they freeze, and once they’re solid, you’re ready to enjoy the flavorful goodness they’ll bring to your drinks.

Do the Ice Cubes Work Well with Alcoholic Drinks?

The flavors in the ice cubes can complement and enhance the flavors in your cocktails. Imagine adding a tropical fruit Kool-Aid ice cube to your piña colada or a citrus-flavored one to your margarita.

As the ice cubes melt, they’ll release their candylike flavors into the drink, adding an extra layer of deliciousness to your sips. Plus, the colorful and vibrant ice cubes can also lend a fun and visually appealing element to your cocktails, making them a hit at parties or gatherings.
